ART FIX: Supper Club and comedy at the pub...

Friday 27 January 2023

The week's Art Fix has something to appeal to all the senses, from a Supper Club filled with an explosion of delicious tastes, to a pub comedy night filled with laughter, and a selection of concerts to please the ears...

Every weekend, Express presents a selection of exhibitions, performances, workshops, events and other historic, creative and delicious content to help islanders get their weekly dose of culture.

Here's this week's Art Fix offering...

The Jèrriais Song Project, the first ever commission of a song cycle written in Jèrriais, was first conceived by Georgia Mae Bishop who has a passion for classical music and its inclusion in education and supported by ArtHouse Jersey.

The music has been composed by Charles Mauleverer and will be performed by Georgia Mae alongside pianist Aaron Burrows in two concerts taking place at StHelier Town Church next month.

The main concert will take place on the evening of Friday 3 February at 19:00-20:30, with a chance to meet the artists for a post-show drink. Tickets are £10.

The following day, Saturday 4 February, will see a family friendly concert take place at the church between 14:00-14:45 featuring a sing-a-long. Tickets for this event are £5 for adults and free for children.

More details about the project and ticket links for both concerts can be found on the ArtHouse Jersey website.

Vikings return


The Vikings return to Jersey’s shores this February half term to provide some action-packed fun for young Islanders at the Maritime Museum.

An exciting programme of family-friendly events, sponsored by Ogier, will take place at 10:00-16:00 from Monday 13 February to Friday 17 February.

Professional history re-enactors from UK-based Griffin Historical will be invading’ the Maritime Museum as Vikings to share stories from Norse myths and legends and lead a host of action activities, including combats, feuds and duelling. Families will also be able to catch a glimpse into the daily life of these fierce Scandinavian traders and sea warriors, with object handling crafts and expert knowledge.

Usual entry fees apply but ‘Vikings’ is free to Jersey Heritage Members and children under the age of six. Dressing up is encouraged!

This series of weekend exhibitions at the arts charity's studios at Greve de Lecq Barracks invites the community to 'pop up' to the site to enjoy the work of local artists in the unique exhibition space

All artists are encouraged to apply, whether they are painters, printmakers, sculptors, ceramicists, photographers, performers or filmmakers.

To apply, artists can head to the 'Opportunities' section of the ArtHouse Jersey website and click on the 'Pop Ups' drop down, where they will find guidelines and the application form.

The deadline to apply is midnight on 8 February 2023.

Jersey from the air


An award-winning drone photographer's images of Jersey's rugged clifftops, stunning seascapes and green countryside have been selected to feature on the latest issue of stamps.

The stamps are the second instalment of Jersey Post's 'Jersey from the Air' series - and also the second set to feature the cypher of King Charles III.

Taken by Marc Le Cornu of BAM Perspectives, the photos in the stamp collection include landmark locations from across the island including Grosnez Castle in St. Ouen, Faldouët Dolmen in St. Martin and St. Aubin's Harbour in St. Brelade. Lesser-known spots of natural beauty such as Bouley Bay Hill in Trinity and the cliffs near Plémont in St Ouen also feature.

Mr Le Cornu said: "I am very proud to have this second set of stamps featuring my images and extremely grateful to Jersey Stamps for this incredible honour! It is extra special to have this new set featuring the cypher of the new King as I now have a set endorsed by the Queen and the King!"

Jersey Post's Jersey from the Air II stamps will be available to buy from all branches of Jersey Post from 28 January 2023.
